Perl Scripting in Shared Web Hosting
In case you buy a shared web hosting through us, you're able to execute Perl/CGI scripts without a problem because we have plenty of modules installed on the cloud hosting platform where all of the shared accounts are created. With each and every plan, you'll have access to over 3000 modules which you can use in your scripts and you'll find a full list inside your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel together with the path that you have to use in order to access them. Should you use any kind of script that you have downloaded from a third-party website, you can rest assured that it will work perfectly regardless of what modules it needs for that. Every .pl script can be executed manually or you will be able to create a cron job to do this automatically at a specific time interval. In case your web hosting plan doesn't come with cron jobs, you will be able to add this attribute with a few clicks inside the Upgrades section of your Control Panel.
Perl Scripting in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you want to include CGI scripts on your sites or any other Perl-based software for that matter, you will not encounter any kind of problems if you use a semi-dedicated server account from us. Thousands of Perl modules are installed on our servers and you'll be able to call them by adding the path that you will find in your Control Panel into the script that you use. Any time you download some application from a third-party site, for instance, you can be sure that you will be able to use it no matter what modules it requires to function. Provided that your .pl files have the appropriate UNIX permissions to ensure they are executable, you can choose whether a specific script will be run manually by a guest doing something on your website, or automatically by creating a cron job inside your account. When you use the second option, your script can be run every day, hour or minute depending on your preference.
